Harwood Lloyd has unique expertise in representing developers of condominium and co-op projects in New Jersey and New York. Our team of attorneys is able to prepare and file offering plans and governmental applications related to such projects. We are experienced in working with both state and local agencies throughout the approval process. After a project has been approved and is ready for sales to start, our attorneys and paralegal staff know how to organize and handle the simultaneous sales of numerous condominium or co-op units quickly and efficiently.
Real estate transactions often involve other issues arising from other areas of law such as land use and zoning, real estate tax appeals, environmental, insurance, and taxation issues. Harwood Lloyd is able to provide full service to our real estate clients with expert representation in these and other related areas.
Especially in a down real estate market and a difficult economy, Harwood Lloyd’s Real Estate Transaction group provides quality and attentive representation in a variety of real estate transactions with an eye towards minimizing costs to clients in terms of both time and money.
